Pick up your rifle and join the Green or Grey army in their mission to send the enemy home in a box! RUNNING WITH RIFLES is an open world, top-down, tactical shooter for single player and multiplayer online, that puts you right in the middle of chaos in towns, trenches and forests turned into ruthless battlefields, controlling just one soldier in an army of several hundreds. In a war where men die like flies and endless streams of reinforcements run to fill the void, it takes tactics and marksmanship to capture territories effectively. The open world nature of the game enables you to use a multitude of approaches to help the front line move – it's up to you to shape your role. Experience the complete arc starting as a private hardening into a high ranking officer with a squad under command, arming yourself with a variety of weapons and vehicles on your way to glory!

As said a few weeks ago RWR 0.93 was coming in a few weeks and now it's indeed here! Most of the crucial changes were covered that time, go check it out if you're eager for a refresher. A cleaned up and probably incomplete change log can be seen here.

Beta 0.93

On other news, my Mac mini has finally arrived, so completing (read: starting) the Mac port gets closer every day. We're also preparing a new demo, so if any of you, the beta-testers, stumble on any crashes or critical launch issues, would be gold for us to know about it. We of course know each and every other bug the game has, so we'll process the other bug reports a bit later, obviously they are welcome too :P Just stop by at the forum and speak your mind!

Any feedback on the current state of campaign would also be highly useful for us. We've obviously played the game for a long time, and to keep the campaign challenging for us, it can become unbearable for newcomers. Campaign difficulty settings are also coming, but aren't there yet. We haven't finished balancing the campaign, far from it, and especially the maps you see in the later phases might be a bit so-so in terms of balance, depending on which route you take. Also writing (faction, map and base names, dialogue, item naming and descriptions) can be considered placeholders at this stage, that is something we will start working with with a clearer mind for the Steam Early Access.

Speaking of which, RWR Steam Early Access release should soonish follow the release of the demo, the biggest time sink being the promotional video. The last ones are starting to look dated by now so we've got to step up in that department as well.

Mostly there are 10ish dedicated servers up, a few in US East Coast, UK, Germany, Finland, and from time to time unorganized 6-10-player matches tend to emerge, the much I've been following it with Serverlist.modulaatio.com

The organized get-together events usually reach about 20 simultaneous players for about 2 hours.

A handful of people seem to be using this tool Modulaatio.com to track these matches, so they know when to be there.

Is this in the demo? I could check what's going on if you'd send C:\ProgramData\RUNNING WITH RIFLES Demo\rwr_game.log, you can just copy & paste the contents on a site such as Pastebin.com

If it's the game, you'd find the same file at C:\Users\pasik\AppData\Roaming\Running with rifles, just replace pasik with your Windows username.

Just hit space (or the key you set for jump) near the ladder, and while on it, move towards the wall to climb up and outwards to climb down.

I've noticed there are a few bugged ladders that don't seem to be accessible, but generally they should work fine.

The demo will be updated within a week or so after we're ready with version 0.90. The dependency bundle for RWR Linux will change as well, should work better then!

This is a great game. I've described it to friends as a combination between General Chaos, Cannon Fodder, a rather obscure but innovative game called Net War and once vehicles are added, even a touch of Warhawk. On top of all of this, the developer is great and really listens to the community.
